Too buggy to be a daily driver. I've been using this app to transmit GPS information from my Tablet to my Phone which had a broken GPS antenna. Server+ (Nexus 7 2012 Wifi on CM11.2) and Client+ (HTC DesireHD CM7.2) The client+ app works most of the time, other than some buggy app run time problems which sometimes terminates the app before the set-time. This problem can be avoided by changing the app run time, then completely exit out of the app then reopen the app. The server+ is riddled with problem. The server-to-client connection is easily interrupted upon going into and coming out of the lockscreen. While the screen is locked, the server+ app remains finicky. I've experience several loss of connection between the server and the client during a short ride. It could be caused by the simple loss of GPS signal. When coming out of the lockscreen, the server goes into a frenzy of GPS locked-on, loss of signal. The loop continues in the notification until I actually enter into the app, then the server stabilizes at Locked-on. In all, it's a buggy app. I've reverted back to TetherGPS for further testing. At this moment I cannot recommend this app to anyone. Although your mileage may vary.

Works well after messing with it for a bit. The only thing i don't like about these apps (server and client) is that every time you install it you have to go in and re-set it up and it defaults to only run for 5 minutes, so if you find yourself having to keep re-starting the app make sure you change its run time to indefinitely. Who would use this app for only 5 minutes? Also the app always displays a message saying failed to activate licence, which is annoying.
